50cl crowler from Brewdog Glasgow (£4.55):
Dark, almost copper amber with a thick, foamy head on top & lots of sediment through the body that eventually turns the beer quite thick & murky looking. It's a tropical nose with a background sweetness, some apricot, sugars, citrus & grapefruit further on but nothing is too pronounced; there's a tiny bit of alcohol at the end too. The taste is stronger with a similarly tropical taste, apricot & strong pine flavours & a bit of caramel then passionfruit to finish. The body is medium & it's a dry, bitter beer with a good balance as well.

Fresh pint can poured to Creature Comforts glass.
Very cloudy, hazy golden orange yellow, nice color. Decent moderately thick bubbly head. Lots of hop residue in bottom of can which excites me for the tasting.
Aromas of soft candied fruit, citrus, grapefruit, apricot.
Taste was not piney, but full and mellow, fruity, very good.
Appropriate feel for a mild DIPA, enough resin and hop thickness to satisfy, yet very drinkable!
Overall very good, very drinkable, fruity and flavorful DIPA. Trimtab DIPA’s usually satisfy.

My brother-in-law surprised me with this while I was visiting in Atlanta; reminds me of some beers by the veil in Richmond. Try this if you can find it!

Poured into a snifter. A hazy bright yellow color with a sturdy white head. Great aroma with mango, strawberry, and oranges. Taste featured juicy oranges with resin, tropical notes, and very soft bitterness. Great soft feel and zero astringency. Just outstanding.

Sampler pour at brewery. Has a hazy golden glow with a creamy thin head.

Aroma is pure juice. Lots of wonderful OJ. Grapefruit juice. Mango. Pineapple. Blueberry. Wow.

Flavor brings piney hops to start, followed by dank apricot and blueberry, some pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit rind, and more pineapple. Very tasty.

Feel is juicy and acidic and huge. Nice resins clinging behind. Good juice.

Overall a very impressive New England IPA. Would have again.

A: This beer pours an opaque orange-yellow color with a fluffy white head.

S: Sweet tropical fruits come through in the aroma. Lemon and ripe orange appear too.

T: Orange, peach, and pineapple dominate the flavor. It's sweet but not overly so - it has a dry quality which I appreciate. Hop juices all throughout. Bittersweet finish.

M: Pillowy soft complemented by carbonation.

O: This is my favorite so far from Trimtab, and really it's one of my favorite NEIPAs I've had so far. If you see this, buy it!

No canned on date, but released to the public on 01/10/2020.

The pour on this is mango juice gold. A weighty froth of head rises up on the pour to about a finger in height. As it falls, large patterns of lace decorate the glass.

You really can't beat that combination of Mosaic & Citra hops on the nose. It's candy sweet, featuring perfectly ripe mango, blueberries, mandarin orange, and candied grapefruit. On the back-end you get a touch of floral hops coming through, leaving the slightest hint of bitterness.

The palate boasts similar qualities to the nose, however is much more prominent in contrasting many of the sweeter, fruitier elements conveyed by the hops. Featuring elements of underripe pineapple, freshly cut grass, and a mildly earthy quality, the more organic nature of these hops shine through. As it opens up there's a subtle re-emergence of mango and citrus, but with more of that pithy, bitter quality.

The mouthfeel on this is great, and really sets it apart from other IPAs I've had from this series. Full and smooth, with a carbonation that isn't overly effervescent or distracting, but rather pillowy and more complimentary of that enveloping, juicy softness that drinks exactly like you want a 7.6% NE-Style Double IPA to drink.
